AbstractThis project is a qualitative case study of one female who is a pathological gambler. It explores how gambling has affected her life by describing her life experiences and her perceptions of gambling. Three themes were identified: Gambling to Escape, Irrational Belief Systems, and Chasing the Lost Money. Themes are examined and discussed in relation to this woman's experience as well as to a broader context of other female gamblers. Directions for future research are presented.
